By donating to this campaign today, you can help One Wet Shoe Media keep one shoe dry while our publisher recovers from a slew of serious medical issues.

 

Founded in 2009 by Amee Schmidt, Angela Williams, and a loveable chocolate lab, One Wet Shoe Media is a small independent literary press, website design/programming service, and freelance editing provider.

 

We are interested in publishing new, fresh prose from emerging and established writers. Literary fiction that straddles the boundaries of realism and the fantastic, the ordinary and the absurd, or that stretches the commonplace are especially fascinating to us. We are also eager to give voice to minority groups, chiefly women and members of the LGBTQIA community.

 

One Wet Shoe provides professional editing, website design, and custom programming services to authors, small businesses, and various organizations all over the globe. 

 

To see a list of our services and to read about the books we have already published, see our website at http://www.onewetshoe.com/.

 

We are expanding quickly now, but a recent tragedy has put One Wet Shoe in danger of becoming Two Wet Shoes. Our publisher and CEO, Amee Schmidt, has been effectively managing her narcolepsy for over twelve years, but in the last few months, she began to experience a horde of new and painful symptoms, including severe muscle, bone, joint, and stomach pain, fatigue, and depression. She knew something else was seriously wrong.

 

After seeing a doctor, Amee has been diagnosed with a litany of crippling auto-immune conditions, including Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Fatty Liver Disease, Pancreatitis, and Cholecystitis. She has also been told that this list is likely to grow, as these kinds of diseases tend to appear together. Once you have one, you are likely to get more.

 

In the last few weeks, Amee's condition has worsened to the point where every day is a struggle. She is scheduled for gallbladder surgery in the coming weeks, and this will further complicate her abilities to work and sustain the business. Her current other treatments thus far have only slightly lessened her daily battle with pain. The stress that comes with the inability to work and provide for herself and her family only worsens these conditions, and it would be a life-saver to have some extra income to ease the financial strain.

 

Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 or more by October 31st, 2014. By donating to this fundraiser, you will help us keep one shoe dry during this difficult time. We hope that this money will help One Wet Shoe stay afloat while our CEO seeks further treatment.

 

Help us continue to be the voice for emerging writers and organizations. Please donate today and spread the word. We will be eternally grateful for any aid you can provide.

 

Sincerely,

 

The Staff of One Wet Shoe Media
